Christmas Marshmallow Pops

You will need:

*melting chocolate (white & milk in any colors you want)
*Christmas sprinkles
*lollipop sticks (small or regular size)
*spoon (to stir the melting chocolate)
*Microwave safe dish (to melt chocolate)
*Wax paper and tray
*Cello bags & ribbons


How to:

Star by making lollipops using marshmallows and the lolli sticks. Once you have them ready, go ahead and melt the chocolate in the microwave. Cover each marshmallow pop and decorate right away using sprinkles, after you're done place each marshmallow pop in the tray making sure you have the wax paper on the tray...the was paper makes it easier to work with once they're completely dried. Repeat the steps with each marshmallow pop. Let them dry for at least 30 minutes. Wrapped as desired!!

Great stocking stuffers!!
